There weren't enough people to travel on the cruise, so we were given the option of attending a partner cruise (Mitre Peak) at the same time or a JUCY cruise later that afternoon. We went with Mitre Peak and their service was excellent. The actual cruise itself was also awesome - breathtaking views and not at all packed with people.

It poured rain the day we visited Milford (19 Jan), the clouds were low so we were not able to see the tops of the mountians. It did not stop us from having a great time! Be prepared - bring an umbrella, rain jacket, second pair of shoes and a change of clothes as there is nothing worse than driving back home soaking wet and cold - especially in the middle of a NZ summer (which is quite mild!!!) Dont be afraid to get wet - get out on the top deck in the rain and enjoy the cruise :)
